Police investigate ''Angel'' star's death

Police investigate ”Angel” star’s death — Glenn Quinn, who played Doyle in the show’s first season, died last week of an apparent overdose at age 32

Posted on

Los Angeles police are investigating the death last week of former ”Angel” star Glenn Quinn, the Los Angeles Times reports. The actor was found dead at a friend’s home in North Hollywood on Tuesday. Detectives told the Times that they believe the 32-year-old died of a drug overdose, and that the case would remain open pending the completion of toxicology tests. Police say they do not suspect foul play.

Quinn played the half-demon Doyle throughout the first season of ”Angel” in 1999, until his character was killed off and written out of the show. Before that, the Irish-born actor had a recurring role on ”Roseanne,” playing Mark Healy, the dimwitted husband of elder daughter Becky, from 1990 to 1997.
